LaMarr Woodley promises Steelers won’t be 0-2
Posted by Michael David Smith on September 13, 2012, 11:50 AM EDT

Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley doesn’t even want to hear anyone suggest that his team could be 0-2 after Sunday’s game.

When a reporter prefaced a question to Woodley by noting that the Steelers are a loss away from their first 0-2 start in a decade, Woodley quickly cut her off.

“And we won’t be 0-2” Woodley said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Every week the mindset is to go out there and win a football game, and not start the season off bad. So far we’re 0-1, and we’ll manage to not go 0-2.”

The Steelers are favored to beat the Jets on Sunday, but given the way the Jets played in their own Week One game, it certainly wouldn’t be a shock if Woodley’s prediction fails to come true. But one positive sign for the Steelers is that the last time they started 0-2, in 2002, they still made the playoffs.

I understand the spirit of Woodley's comments, but I'd rather the Steelers let their performance do the talking.

Somewhere down the line the Steelers will go 0-2. Let's just hope it's not this week. Losing to two AFC opponents this early would be very problematic.

great minds obviously think alike, because that was my first thought also.

and Woodley can be the first one to do so, he was pretty invisible against Denver.

Very invisible. Maybe he had a facebook link inside his helmet and was on that the whole time? ;)

And it's times like these when I wish we had the personality of a Cowher on the sideline when this team is once again struggling to find an identity.

I'm curious as to why you would think that a personality like Cowher's would help that at all?

Oh my. Just look back to any season he coached (except 2006 in which he mailed it in). Cowher was a master motivator, preparer, and sideline general. Let's see how Tomlin has this team ready on Sunday! I am hoping he will.

Please don't say that. The Oakland loss from a few years back is still fresh in my mind.:-x

He's been invisible about half the time since signing his big, fat contract. Time for the $61 million man to button his lip and start playing some football.

Hope he doesn't take half a season to get up to speed...

I guess BC was so great when Flowers , Porter etc ran their mouths..... Makes me shake my head!

it's always the same story, the guy that isn't here, the guy that's on the bench, the guy that is hurt,... is the guy the Steelers need to win.

I have been hoping one of these young guys will emerge as a leader and put some stakes in the ground. Honestly, Troy is too quiet, and without Harrison in the game, who will be the spokesman for the Defense? Maybe this is Woodley making the first step...

Others have said it, the Steelers desperately need someone with 'tude in the game.

Well, Keisel is the defensive captain. And just because we don't hear him spouting off in the media doesn't mean that he isn't making his presence felt in the locker room behind closed doors.

As for younger guys emerging as potential leaders as you mentioned, I think Woodley is a good candidate for the defense (and possibly Antonio Brown or Maurkice Pouncey on offense).
